Taken from a speeding bus, so I've set the aperture as high as possible to minimize blur, either 1/1000 or 1/500 second. The Fall colors along the river were gorgeous. I've also upped saturation a bit but have not overdone it imho. Taken with an analogue film camera using Fuji film 100 or 200 iso. Also blurred the grainy sky & removed some annoying powerlines using blur and adding noise and color & hue tints where necessary.

Hi Chris.

For a speeding bus, you look as though you coped very well with the capture. I like your last second choice in taking this along the river and valley....some of the leaning trees do look odd. Attractive light and colour obtained.

Stv ;0))

Not bad Chris; never easy from a moving vehicle but your choice of speed has worked. A touch OE in the centre, otherwise a nice scene with a pleasing composition of the river flowing across the scene. Good job removing the powerlines - I'd never have known if you hadn't said ;-)

Hello Chris, taken from a speeding bus? I would never have realised it if you hadn't said!
The leaning trees act at keeping our eyes in frame, looking along the river and towards the distant hills.
Good repair work, no sign of any power lines!
You achieved a good DoF.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Though you got this picture from the moving bus but still you managed to preserve some goo details of a lovely landscape, Chris!

The sharpness and DOF are well done, and colors are natural.
Well management of light and exposure too.
Nice work!

Best wishes,

Awesome capture of the fall colors on the Merced River. This place looks like the segment of the highway that detoured (and only one way) due to construction when I visited Yosemite last fall so we had to wait about 15 minutes for the on coming traffic. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Ciao Chris, fascinating landscape, beautiful composition with lovely river, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Chris,
I admire most in this presentation the perfect PP work on this film picture. Quite natural colors, Autumn colors. The river is enhancing the composition. I'm not sure of the fraction of road in the bottom right. I would have cloned it out.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Chris,
What a lovely view. I could keep looking at this for a long time. Your PPP to remove the power lines is very good, I can not see where they would have been at all.

The colors are very natural and subdued.

Great one.
